The newest prodigy coming from the Canaries’ factory, the 19-year-old Alberto Moleiro has been turning heads with his impressive performances in the Segunda División. Although Barcelona missed out on the chance to sign the Spanish youngster, they are closely following his development and are ready to go for his signature once again in the summer.

Moleiro, who currently plays for second-tier UD Las Palmas, has been impressive with his exquisite technical abilities and creative flair on the pitch. As reports from Mundo Deportivo suggest, Barcelona, which have been keeping an eye on the progress of the youngster, are very impressed with his performances.

The Blaugrana maintain their interest in the Tenerife-born teenager although failing to sign him in the summer of 2022 for a fixed fee of €10 million and a further €15 million in variables. However, the desire to bring the youngster to the Catalan capital indicates strong hopes in Moleiro’s potential.

However, Barcelona’s financial situation can prevent the deal from going through as Las Palmas will not let their young starlet go easily, as stated by the president of the club. Miguel Ángel Ramírez further pointed out that the player still has a valid contract until 2026, with a release clause set at €30 million.

Moreover, this release clause could rise to €60 million in case Las Palmas gets promoted to the first division. Currently, the Canary Islands-based side is occupying the second place on the table, with 58 points claimed after 31 games played, only one point behind leaders Eibar and 3 points ahead of third-placed Levante.

In other words, they have strong chances of getting promoted to La Liga, which would further aggravate the Catalans’ pursuit of Moleiro.

Barcelona’s interest in Moleiro is in keeping with the club’s longstanding tradition of nurturing and signing young talent, a strategy that has been successful in recent years with the likes of Pedri and Ronald Araujo. Anyway, if the deal still goes through, the signing of such a talented youngster would perfectly fit in the vision of the Blaugrana signing and nurturing young talent.
